    If Remain won the referendum (with the same results, 58-42) and someone made a petition about how unfair it was, I bet you that will be sorted in an hour and people would just tell them to shut up and live with it because Leavers are racists and don't deserve to vote.

    I'm sorry, the last time I heard the UK democratically made the decision to Leave the EU fair and square, it is therefore absurd that these ignorant, sore-loser Remainers can't even accept the fact that they have lost. It's over. If we have another referendum on this again it will only make our nation look out of control and heading towards third-world democracy.

    Wot?

    No legally binding contract has been signed by anyone, and the referendum is only advisory. Strictly speaking it has no legal standing at all.

    Twitter has gone nuts with Brexit. The number of tweets that have called Brexiters racist is unbelievable.
    Racist haha but they're white! xD surely they can't be that overly-sensitive.

    Note: if i even mentioned middle-easterns or asians or black people i would immediately, even on here, be called a racist. No one can properly talk about immigration due to the overly used term, racism. There's no earthly reason to have so many non-UK people in the UK. Hell, I'm probably already a racist in some "politically correct" peoples' eyes here anyway. Doesn't bother me.

    However there's no reason for Remainers to start name calling because they didn't win ;D

    Absolutely ridiculous ... 2nd ref for UK's membership of the EU and Scottish Independence is a call for undemocratic politics, we SHOULD and MUST accept the result even if we disagree with the outcome. There's no going back. Linking with the idea of a 2nd ref, the idea for London to gain its own independence is beyond ludicrous and I don't think that's even possible.

    I partly agree- We shouldn't have another EU Referendum.

    Although, I do think Scotland deserve another referendum because the situation has changed. The Scottish were told if they left they wouldn't be guaranteed a place in The EU, now they have been dragged out of The EU against their will! (Same with NI btw!)

    "I could not consent to the introduction into our national life of a device so alien to all our traditions as the referendum, which has only too often been the instrument of Nazism and fascism."

    -- Clement Attlee, speaking in 1945.
    How? That is like saying democracy is the essence of fascism. Fascist were thrown notion power buy the will of the people. Obviously we should abandon all notion of democracy.

    Sigh, somehow I knew this would happen whether the result was remain or leave. And if we had a second referendum, it would happen again. This decision was reached democratically. Now, we need to stick with the choice Britain made.

    It won't happen but personally I find it an insult to say a campaign which won based on lies and misinformation is a 'fair' result, you say it is undemocratic to want a second referendum but it is equally undemocratic to base a campaign on a blatant lie and mail half a dozen leaflets stating it as a fact. If you are saying people were not misled in any sense you are in my opinion incorrect, I think people have voted based on the egos of some politicians rather than the facts. I'm not saying all people have voted that way, but a significant portion heard that argument and will have used them 'facts' when considering how to vote. To say people are sore losers is a generalisation, I stated before the referendum that this vote would be based on misinformation and that the public would be worse off for it and I am worried that has occurred today.

    Has a city in a country wanted independence recently?

    The only recent example I can think of is Catalonia wanting independence from Spain, would be interesting how that would work
